2.0 MediocreNov 16 2021
I will never use Kayak again after this experience with the car rental. The rental agency didn't actually exist, but was a different agency when we got there. The car was 15 years old and so trashed it was embarrassing to drive. The agency had so many stipulations on the car that we were sure we were being set up for a scam, for example, $150 charge if returned dirty on outside, when we picked it up dirty to begin with! The car was the junkiest car I had ever driven in my life and the price we paid for the Nissan Versa for 5 days in PR was more than the BMW rented in Germany for a month. I do blame myself for trusting Kayak and not doing more research. I will not make that mistake again. Routes/Allied buys rental cars from other agencies and rents them for the price you would pay other agency for a new car...then they threaten you with exorbitant fees and charges for the most inane things that I never even thought about with other agencies, and that they themselves don't bother maintaining on the car. Nightmare!

Call them if your flight is delayed. They cancelled my reservation because I was 1h 20 mins late. The catch? Pay them extra and use their "full coverage car insurance" to reopen the reservation. Through this scam they made an extra $45/per day! I don't recommend their service. The wait times were slow but it's normal given the amount of things to do before they give you the car. Also they are understaffed.
2.0 MediocreNov 11 2021
Waited for 45 minutes in line to find out that I was charge over $150 more, this is not including the daily tolls. Employee was unable to explain the difference in the amount. The people in front of me was also overcharged and the man behind me as well. Go somewhere else and avoid the ripoff.

I had to call my insurance company and have them tell “charlie” car rental company that my insurance was transferable to PR. I have rented cars in numerous foreign countries and have never had to do this. I understand that if that is the process, but please let me do when I book the car, not during my vacation.

Good service. The way the whole island deals with COVID is excellent. Location was clean ,but not how it was advertised. The address makes it sounds as if it’s at the airport when it’s outside of the airport. Need to take a shuttle to and from the location.

I had made reservations back at the beginning of September it should have been ready for pick up. Had to wait for the guy to clean it. I waited about 40 minutes. Car had a dent with scratches on the passenger side.

No frills at office but replied late evening.My Kia Soul had a jammed wheel. Enterprise sent a technician who came at night and fixed it for me. I appreciate their reply and efforts to help with this problem.Not being able to get an Uber ride from the airport was not my cup of tea, but taxi worked fine and charged $14 for a family of 3 with luggage.

Great value cars!The car that we had was so nice and in excellent condition. It was very fairly priced. Staff spoke English and were very helpful. The overall experience was excellent and it was a great value!The location was fine for us because we were staying on Isle Verde but it would be challenging for travelers looking for easy access from the airport. It would be a $15 cab ride to Enterprise location.

Nothing, rude, arrogant, no help. Showed up, car had been wrecked the day before, was never called or made aware of this, left stranded outside with no help to get anywhere.Everything could have been better. I will never use europcar again for the rest of my life, and I hope no one else does either. Those people were terrible.
5.6 OkayMar 13 2020
The car worked wellI was not given any instructions on the car dropoff. There was no key dropbox and there were no instructions sent to me about the key dropoff either. We spent nearly an hour trying to call europcar and find a place to drop off the key. In the end we decided to just lock the car keys in the vehicle. Almost missed my flight too. Will never use this company again.

Enormous lines at the counter at both pick up and drop off that all other brands did not have. The helpfulness of staff was atrocious. I highly recommend renting from a different brand even if it’s a little more expensive. You will regret not spending the extra money for the service.
1.9 HorribleJul 30 2021
We waited at the counter in line for 2 hours and 45 minutes to complete the paperwork with the agent. After being checked in we then waited another 45 to get the car. We got into San Juan around 4:30pm and figured with a 25min commute we’d have most the night to relax on the beach at the hotel. We didn’t get out of the airport car rental until 8:30pm. We lost a night of our vacation due to Avis’ poor service, and we will never use them again.

I reserved the car in May for a June trip and called 1 week before to confirm my reservation. I arrived at 1:30 a.m. and was told that there were no cars available. I was told to return to the airport later in the morning as they MAY (not will) have cars available. I called the 1-800 number to see if there was a way to confirm if there would be any cars available as I didn't want to waste my time and cab money going back to the airport. I was also traveling with 2 kids, which made this situation a little more difficult. The representative that I spoke to was nasty and one of his comments was that "it wasn't his problem". When I asked to speak to a supervisor or manager he told me he didn't have one and hung up on me. I went back to the airport the next morning and there were 8 others waiting in front of me. I timed the check-in for the couple that was already at the counter and it was about 20-25 minutes. Do the math. With 8 people in front of me, I was sure I would spend at least 2 hours waiting to get the counter and even when I got there, there was no guarantee I'd get a car. Luckily I found another car from another company. I will NEVER EVER rent from Avis.The entire experience could have been better.
2.0 MediocreJun 28 2021
NothingEasily the worst experience I've ever had. Made the reservation a month in advance and by the time I arrived at the counter, the clerk had the audacity to tell me there are no cars available for me until the next day. What is the point of having a reservation if you're not going to honor it. Had to pay a $100 cab ride to get to my hotel.

Loved that they did not push random car insurances and made me feel bad with guilt declining some extras. Other car rental companies pushes you to have their insurances and other stuff that is not really needed. I would only suggest to make it more visible and more clear that they will have some $200 on hold even when you are 25+ years old and use a credit card. The counter only said they would need some money on hols for Debit card and younger drivers. I was able to have enough funds; but be aware to have that amount or more for the tolls as well.

5.9 OkayAug 29 2021
The Budget/Avis staff in San Juan airport was friendly and helpful. She was bilingual, which was great since no one in my family speaks Spanish. The problem was that only Avis and Budget had the larger cars, so although there were your typical car rental places at the airport, there was a huge line to get through because it seemed that a lot of travelers wanted larger cars/SUVs/minivans. I think I waited in line for over an hour to get my car because there were only 2 people working at the desk between the Budget and Avis counters (they must be owned by the same company because they had one line feeding both car rental counters). They could have made this better by having more people at the desk to help get through the line. Drop off was a breeze. They checked us in and we were out of there in 5 minutes.

If you use one toll road for $0.75, Budget bills you $28.75. The toll road gets only $0.75, and Budget gets $28. That's just wrong.

The lady at the front desk was rude and slow of service. Picking up the car took almost an hour waiting for it to be brought to us. They also would not take insurance we had paid for when we rented vehicle online. Also over priced. Will not rent from Budget again.

The rental was more expensive than quoted originally. I tried to extend it for 2 additional day and the price doubled for the 2 extra days.
2.0 MediocreNov 14 2021
Bottom line up front: My wife and I did not enjoy our experience, and we will not return to NextCar again. The price quoted for the rental was not accurate. The taxes/fees were an additional fifty dollars beyond those that were listed with the reservation. The associate who ‘helped’ us check out the car was less than pleasant. When I showed her that the price she was charging did not match the price we reserved, she just shrugged her shoulders. The vehicle itself was lacking. There was less than one eighth of a tank of fuel when we picked up the car, and several safety features (brake light and wipers) had worn out and needed replacement. Additionally, the vehicle (an automatic not a manual transmission) stalled repeatedly in parking lots and at red lights. I doubt I’ll rent from NextCar again. You get what you pay for. The discount isn’t worth it.
2.0 MediocreNov 11 2021
The shuttle drivers are nice and accommodating. All the rest of the staffs are terrible, arrogant, no customer service skills and yelling to customers. I was asking for my receipt and refused to give it and promised to email it and one day after haven’t received it yet. The lady staffer who issued the car were insisting to copy( xerox) my credit card and showing me other credit cards that she copied. Very unprofessional. Probably need customer oriented employees. Will not recommend to other people this establishment.

The car was clean and it was located in a convenient location from the airport, also the bus shuttle from the airport was excellent.

I didn't like anything about this rental experience. This is the last time I will rent from this place in Puerto Rico. They will take advantage of people and overcharge them with hidden fees when you arrive to pick up your car. They don't honor the price given by KAYAK and service is poor from customer service to the wait time to pick up vehicle. It took about 45-50 minutes to get our vehicle from our check-in.

1.9 HorribleJul 29 2021
Upon arrival to Puerto Rico, the company I made the reservation with were out of cars. To which I was informed that when the reservation is made, we reserve the price and not the vehicle. The shuttle took us to another location, 3 buildings down and we had to wait 3 hours for a car rental. The service to both locations was horrible. It was raining too, and they had over 15 people waiting under the rain on a carp that they had placed in front of the building. They only had one person working and another guarding the door indicating people that only one person at the time in side of the building, to which the door had a sign stating that 29 people at the time, per government compliance. We do understand that Covid is going on and have change several things, but the lack of communication, wait time, customer service was horrible to Allied Car Rental and Next Car. My reservations were maid through Kayak and I will not be using this services any more. This was my first time and last.
